Holograms have amazed and intrigued us from Princess Leia's famous Star Wars scene "Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi" to Tupac performing "live" at Coachella. Are you ready to become a hologram? Here's how!
In this lesson students will take a look at how holograms work, what is and isn't really a hologram, build a hologram viewer, and make a hologram of themselves.
In this third lesson of a four lesson project, students will discover the art and science of holograms.
Students will discuss holograms they are familiar with, and find out how the famous Tupac hologram was made using an illusion called Pepper's Ghost.
They will learn the science behind how holograms work and build a working hologram viewer. Then they can make their very own hologram selfie.
The lessons in this project lead up to a lesson called the Interactive Classroom, where students can transform their classroom into an informative and interactive space for visiting students, parents, and community members. Through student-created virtual reality images, videos made for use in augmented reality, and now a hologram that introduces themselves, the classroom will become a portal for engineered reality.
